ok. let's say - crucial for me, together with hyperlinks.
in your opinion - systems you just mentioned - are they __real__
hypertexts? or WWW with HTMLs? where to begin with "real" hypertext?
i think Ted N. is father of real hypertext and i am still under
impression of xanadu document model - as you probably know - "everyone
can re-use all content virtually, simply by listing the desired
content" [1]. well, there is also something about copyrights ;) but
that's not a point. for now.

Ted said "Let there be a hypertext"
and there was a hypertext and it was good.
And then Tim said "Let there be a html"
and there was a html but it was not good.
